(''...and half the kingdom...'')
Apologies, I haven't had time to continue the main storyline over at the ballroom, because those pages are pretty demanding even when I'm shunting the colours off to my faithful put-upon aides.
So here is a quick doodle, because I saw this quote - those words exactly - going around as a text post on tumblr, possibly one of those ''drunken texts from last night'' things, I forget the source. And someone had tagged it as a Tentoo quote, and then quite rightfully the Labyrinth fandom reclaimed it. (Look, I have quite the soft spot for that ship as well, but I'm sorry, this line is definitely Jareth's.)
And that retro-actively fits in neatly with GND continuity circa #127 - Double-glazed Fairytale - and what Sophie mentions Jareth and Howl have been up to.
Howl is torn between being 100% comprehending and supportive because stubborn love interests, man, he's been there
, but also, ''OMG I've MET Sarah, great-great-great-great-grand-uncle Jareth, I cannot be hearing this''.
Calcifer is probably chuckling sparks in the background somewhere, sorry I didn't include him in the pity party.
This is a work of fanart and solely intended for shits and giggles. Not my characters, not making money off it.
